I Give It a Year

British rom-com from the writer of Borat (making his directorial debut) looking at the rocky first year of marriage for a pair of newlyweds. Stars Stephen Merchant, Minnie Driver, Rose Byrne and Anna Faris.

Since they met at a party, ambitious high-flyer Nat (Byrne) and struggling novelist Josh (Rafe Spall) have been deliriously happy despite their differences. Impulsively getting hitched after only a few months together, their family, friends and even the minister who marries them aren't convinced that they can last. When the reality of married life begins to wither their relationship, Josh's ex-girlfriend, Chloe (Faris), and Nat's handsome American client Guy (Simon Baker), offer attractive alternatives as their first anniversary approaches...

Even if the emotional mathematics don't quite add up, enough diversion is provided by pic's broader comic setpieces to paper over the cracks.

Mazer's juvenile sense of humour simply isn't strong enough to give the film any balls.

As you’d expect from the man who helped Sacha Baron Cohen concoct naked-wrestling gags, it’s a grimly funny affair.

Dan Mazer's film about a couple who got married too quickly is both funny and plausible, if slightly constricted by its romcom template.

The jokes are strong and delivered by a very talented cast, but the heart isn't there. It's easy to laugh, but hard to care.
